This rifle is styled after ones from
the Deep River area of North Carolina. This area is in the
north central part of the state near Jamestown, between High
Point and Greensboro.
This rifle is stocked in a very nice
piece of curly maple with a unique swiveling wood patchbox.
The barrel is browned and measures 7/8" across the flats and
is a straight profile. The lock is a large Siler. The double
set triggers are by Davis. The hardware is iron which has
been browned but through handling has worn to a nice grey
patina in areas. The barrel pins have very nice silver
inlays surrounding them to keep the pins from chipping out
wood if they are driven out. The cheek area has a nice
silver star and moon inlays as well.
This rifle is used but very little. The
bore is excellent and the gloss finish on the wood shows no
dents, dings or scratches. Overall it is a very nicely made
rifle styled after a school that has a unique history and
Weight is 8 lbs 10 ozs. Pull is 14".
